When the New Year approaches, we all start to think about the promise of a fresh start. The things we’d like to achieve and the goals we’d like to tick off. Sometimes, you focus on your health or your career. But it is completely okay if you want to improve other areas of your life instead.
Your home is important to you, so it’s only natural that you’d want to give it a little love in the New Year.
Whether you’re planning to start now and aim to get your house freshened up ahead of New Year’s, or your goal is to spruce it up within the next 12 months, you can use these tips to make a mini transformation happen in your home.
Freshen Up The Paint
Decorating is an easy way to add a new lease of life to your home. It can be an expensive or affordable option for a spruce, depending on what you’d like to achieve. Say you decide to work on just one room, there are plenty of options for keeping the costs down. But, at the same time, if you’ve chosen to go all out and redo the paint across the entire house, you might still get a good deal on prices too. But remember, you don’t have to decide on the whole house to make a difference to the decor. Just a few simple colour changes could make a significant impact.
Organise Your Storage
Decluttering and organising your home is another way to make a difference in the New Year. Whether you choose to tidy up your garage or sort through your office and paperwork, you could add a new lease of life into your storage spaces. By throwing out old things that you no longer need, you might even feel that a minimalistic style is what suits you best.
Beautify Your Bed
Perhaps the room you’d like to focus on the most is your bedroom. If you want to create a relaxing space to rest in, the New Year could be the perfect time to do it. You might be happy with you bed, but if you’re not, think about investing in a new one. You might be able to sleep better if you do. Then, once that’s decided, think about the accessories that make it what it is. A quilted memory foam pillow, luxury duvet and quality sheets could make all the difference in your sleep.
Redo The Flooring
Or maybe it’s the flooring for you. If you’re tired of the entire flooring in your home, you might be thinking it looks like a big job. And it can be. But it can also be manageable. Pinterest has some really great ideas on achieving a beautifully finished floor for less. If you want the entire home to be unified, you might even be able to get a discount on the flooring you choose. If not, you can still make it work. Be sure to think about your options. Say you have a carpet down at the moment. If you were to tear it up and sand down the floorboards, could they work? If so, you might even save yourself a whole lot of work and money.
